Warbird Radio Presents – An F-86 Story

Warbird Radio Presents - An F-86 Story

WARBIRD RADIO – This week on Warbird Radio Presents we go behind the ropes and tour an F-86 restoration going on at the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Georgia.  Restoration volunteers Gary Schnell and Jeff Summey are working to restore the museum’s F-86 “H” model.  Aside from a full cosmetic make-over the team is also repairing everything under the skin as well.  When the project is complete this will truly be a treasure for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
